A few weekends back, me and the wife went to Cardiff for her birthday. Left daughter home alone (she's nearly 17)... told her she could have a few girlfriends round. Seems that a few more came... boys too - and people they 'knew', one of whom - a 15 year old lad - decided at 4am that he needed a taxi home the 9 miles into Shrewsbury. Ordered said taxi using our landline and when he got home, ran off up some dark alley. The police traced the landline to here, so we got a visit. The thieving little shit thought it was very funny to shaft a taxi driver for the £30 fare (£30 as this was 4am, so double fares). I'm paying it, not cos I have any obligation, but it's the right thing to do. I don't like thinking that a taxi man is £30 down. I can't stand this sort of dishonesty and fraud, FFS taxi drivers have to make a living, and swindling the poor bloke after he comes to fetch you home at 4am is bloody disgusting. I wonder how this pond life would feel if someone took him for £30. So feckin clever - NOT. Plod gave daughter a stern talking to about the company she keeps. If you're going to sup with the devil, use a long spoon. We have our spare keys... bike is stil there and MTB too, so no obvious damage.
